Afterschool Programs

Boise Parks and Recreation operates seven Kid City sites for youth ages 1st through 6th grade and four sites for teens in neighborhoods throughout the city. All the centers provide free or low-cost programs for children including homework assistance, youth sports, recreation programming, STEM activities, art projects, games and a healthy snack. Boise Parks and Recreation partnered with The Boise School District to provide the space for these enriching programs.
